Best Brunch 2008

Because You Can Have Your Pancakes and Eat Them Too

They have blintzes, people, blintzes! You know, they’re like crepes, except instead of being napped with a nearly translucent film of an unpronounceable sauce, Chocolate Maven’s blintzes are positively engorged with housemade ricotta, slathered with crème fraiche and smothered in fruity goo. (We like the cranberry orange chutney.) If you must have sweet things at brunch, you will not be
disappointed here; there are waffles and pancakes and pastries, but all pale in comparison to the wicked crème brûlée French toast. On the savory side, it’s always tough to choose between eggs Madison (with smoked salmon and hollandaise) and the excellent fried egg sandwich. The solution? Order a mini-buffet of side dishes like black beans with salty cheese, a plate of applewood smoked bacon and a dish of chile cheese home fries, then top it off with an enormous piece of chocolate cake! That’s what we do.
